Hey folks, I made some changes to the site, the biggest being the typeface. The site is now set in Lexia, a clean slab serif by Ron Carpenter for Dalton Maag. I’m a sucker for a nice slab serif, and Lexia is easy to read.
I also applied some color, using a dark blue as the primary, and I did some minor visual clean-up.
In the late 70s, Haas Type Foundry commissioned Team?’77 to create a new sans-serif that combined the great qualities of Helvetica, Univers and Akzidenz Grotesk. They came up with Unica, which was released in 1980.
Working from prints of Helvetica, Univers and Akzidenz Grotesk, the trio identified, compared and evaluated the finest of details, creating a new-generation sans-serif that eliminated the imperfections of its predecessors. “Unica was designed to be different,” said André Gürtler; “sharper than Helvetica, warmer than Univers, cleaner than Akzidenz.”
Because of legal disputes, Unica has never been available as a digital typeface. Now it is.
Monotype has just released Neue Haas Unica, a full digital set designed by Toshi Omagari. It is also available as a webfont.
Great to see classic typefaces getting a fresh new life in the digital age.
Font Men is a short documentary, directed & produced by Dress Code, about Jonathan Hoefler and Tobias Frere-Jones, and their world of type. Obviously shot before their public break-up. Really nice motion graphics, too.
